We came across this piece of wisdom a while ago and wrote it on our white board in the office. Unfortunately, we can’t remember where it came from or who said it… 
 
With a number of Clients having noticed – and commented on – it recently, we thought we’d take the hint and pass it on a wider audience. 
 
So, without further ado, here it is: 
 
 
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” 
 
And you may need to read it a few times, perhaps even mull it over for a minute or two (!), to let it really sink in. 
 
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” 
 
Despite what the Little Monster in our head tries to tell us – let alone the media (!) – the vast majority of what happens in our lives is outside our control. And that’s even if we had Superman – or Wonder Woman (!) – powers and resources. 
 
However, the good news is that one thing is completely within our control, even though it doesn’t always feel like it. Ourselves. And that can be a truly scary thought! 
 
How we choose to experience, and then react to, even the smallest matter is down to each of us. No one else, us. Full stop. End of story. And this is despite the Little Monster in our heads using his best efforts to convince us otherwise. 
 
In other words, it’s all down to mindset, the way we choose – and that’s a very important word to remember – to experience life. It’s the reason why some people seem to sail through life serenely, regardless of what happens to and around them. While others are submerged by the smallest unexpected event, let alone anything else. 
 
Over recent years, it’s become increasingly obvious to us just how important mindset – the Little Monster in our Heads – is in determining the outcome of every aspect of our lives. From the largest, life changing, events to the smallest issues we experience every day. It’s particularly the case in health issues too. Not only does it play a part in the health issues we experience but, just as important, whether – and how much – we bounce back from them. And, yes, we appreciate this is a rather contentious statement but one we see repeatedly with Clients. 
 
We write about many different aspects of mindset – and the Little Monster in our heads – regularly in this blog and the posts are all there for you to read. 
 
There’s lots more we could say but, for today, we’ll leave it there. Let you mull over these words of wisdom and how they may be playing out in your life. And, having got your grey matter working, we’ll finish with another of our favourite quotes: 
 
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” 
 
And 
 
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results: 
 
As always, the choice is yours.
